need help selecting range of drill bits for qjet mods

Hi - im trying to select a bunch of custom drill bits for modifying them for my 350 and future projects.

Can anyone suggest some sizes and what they would work for? Or maybe a set? many of the sets have numbers i wouldnt need - so im looking at a custom one -

Go to a hobby store, we have Hobby lobby here. I don't know if they sell them but I bought a drill bit set that are really small, has about 15 different sizes, all of them are smaller than 1/16. I can't remember what its called but its a shaft that has a jaw kind of thing that you tighten with your fingers to hold the drill bits in it ,you turn it by hand. You'll need one of them.

Sears hardware store has them they are called a pin vise and come with a assortment of small diameter drills. You will also need a numbered drill set. I picked one up at Harbor Freight. This will get you started.

On my qjet I had to drill some holes that I didn't have the correct size drill for but I made the size I needed by flattening a paper clip wire and checking with a micrometer. It takes a little work but is do able.
